Priorities

Using database queries with GIS maps, the data can be analyzed to prioritize conservation work and local educational efforts.

Using a combination of the Condition rating and the Integrity ratings, a priority list of tombs needing emergency stabilization was developed. This list was fine tuned during a field inspection to include a few more tombs felt to be unstable or unsafe.

Primary Structure: Priority conservation work needed was defined by those structures whose Condition was less than or equal to 2 (Moderate), and whose Material and Form Integrity was greater to or equal to 2 (Moderate).

Roofs: Priority conservation work needed was defined by those structures whose Condition was less than or equal to 1 (Poor) and whose Material and Form Integrity was greater to or equal to 2 (Moderate).

Conditions

The Dead Space Survey documented the current condition of every tomb. The maps below show the condition of the primary structure, the roof and the stucco and surface finish of each tomb.

Primary Structure Condition: The overall physical state of the structural, decorative, and finish aspects

Integrity

The Dead Space Survey documented the current material and form integrity of every tomb.

Material Integrity: The extent of existing original material; unimpaired or uncorrupted original craftsmanship. The condition of not being marred or violated by modern or inappropriate materials or interventions.

Overall Form Integrity: The extent of existing original form and details. Unimpaired or uncorrupted original craftsmanship. The condition of original detail not being unrecognizable due to loss or marred by modern or inappropriate materials or interventions.

Note: The tombs rated as "New/Rebuilt" were judged in relation to the original tomb design if archival documentation was available. If the original intent was not known, tombs were marked as N/A.
